Sixteen trillion dollars. That is $16,000,000,000,000. That is how much our nation is in debt and $6 trillion was accumulated under the Obama administration and Sen. Bob Casey's tenure.

If we keep adding to this mountain it will be so far out of reach that we will not have any money to pay for anything and, yes, that means anything. No Social Security, Medicare, welfare, food stamps, government health care, government pensions, government payroll, government investments, the military, school loans, government bailouts and -- well, you understand.

This is not a "talking point"; it is a "taking point." They are taking money from you, your children, their children, their children and so on and giving you nothing but a promise that all will be fine.

Don't worry, be happy, because your vote is worth your nation's future. Remember, that is the future of the 47 percent and the 53 percent. Yes, 100 percent of us will be broke together. Please, vote for the candidates who you believe will be the most fiscally conservative so that your 2016 self will be proud of the stand that you took in 2012. It will be worth it.
